I'm building a very simple web page in my web development class. I use a windows 10 laptop instead of the Macintosh computers provided in the lab. The exact code that works on the macs doesn't run correctly on mine. 

The issue is with the container div. For some reason I'm receiving these errors, even though the tags are very clearly paired:

It's worth noting that whenever I modify the container div in CSS, the changes are only applied to the material in the header. 

 

Any help would be appreciated!

You could probably just move your opening <div id="container"> to before your opening <header> as below:

 

<div id="container">
<header>
		

 

 

I dont know what css is applied to the 'container' but maybe its supposed to be a container wrapper for the whole html structure?

I'm getting the same error when I run your code through the w3 validator ( https://validator.w3.org ) so this definitely is not a windows/mac thing. DW works the same as a text editor when it comes to HTML for both.

 

Inside your <header> you did not close your container div and then you have a stray closing div after your footer. To maintain proper struture, your container div should start after your closing header and end before your opening footer. This is because headers/footers are structure like your div so inside them all of your elements must open and close and your div is breaking the rules by opening in the middle of one and closing outside of the other.

Try this:

<body class="container">
